In July 2020, Electromet enhanced its fabrication capability by installing a Trumpf Trupunch 1000 in its Hagerstown, MD fabrication facility. This punch can support an envelope of 48 x 120 inches and gives Electromet a significant capability and capacity boost.
The Trupunch 1000 includes countersinking and tapping into a single operation. This technical versatility allows Electromet to handle much larger fabricated components and to process them with much greater efficiency.
Adding the Trupunch 1000 is both a capability and capacity enhancement. Electromet expects to increase total manufacturing capacity by 25% in 2020, and the addition of the Trupunch 1000 is an important part of this plan to support the continued growth of Electromet’s defense business.
